chris burkard made the switch

THIS WORLD-TRAVELING PHOTOGRAPHER CHOSE SONY BECAUSE HE WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING “POCKETABLE BUT POWERFUL.” For nature and travel photographer Chris Burkard, surfing and climbing and kayaking are more than just the subjects he photographs. They’re integral to the life he lives. “I’ve found that if you’re able to live that lifestyle,” Burkard says, “rather than just be like, ‘this is what I want to shoot for work and this is what I want to shoot for myself and this is what I want to put out in the world…’ Well if you just decide to live it, I think that benefits a lot. If you’re not having the experience yourself then it’s not really going to come through in the imagery no matter how hard you try.” As a globetrotter, Burkard learned long…

1. WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT OUR CAMERA There are a ton of buttons, dials, and commands on the top, front and back of our cameras these days. For a lot of us, it’s really frustrating because you know you could be getting a lot more out of your camera than you currently are. If you knew what all those buttons, dials, and commands actually did. Well, first, here’s the good news. You don’t need to learn all that stuff. Because even though some of those operations are really important and make a difference, honestly, there are a bunch of controls in there that are total fluff. Just like in the menus on your TV, right? There are many options in the menus for your TV, but we only actually use a…

Quick, guess how many new cameras were introduced in 2015? Did you guess 10? 20? 50? By our count, there were around 70 new cameras released in 2015, and that’s not even counting the myriad new smartphones that arrived this year. That’s a particularly impressive number, considering that, in 2014, there were fewer than 40 new cameras released, which puts 2015 at nearly double the number of new models as the year before. Seventy new cameras, ranging from entry-level models at a $100 price point all the way up to break-the-bank professional cameras as much as $14,000—that’s an astounding array of new photographic tools released in an era where pundits are claiming that the traditional camera is dead, and the smartphone is king. Much of the activity in the industry revolves around mirrorless cameras—Fujifilm,…

CANON EOS M3 Canon’s newest mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera, the EOS M3 has been available for a while outside the U.S., but now it’s available here. Like the original EOS M, it’s a very compact, “flat”-style design that uses EF-M lenses and (with the optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS M), a wide range of Canon EF and EF-S DSLR lenses. Inside are the company’s highest-resolution APSC sensor (24.2-megapixel Canon CMOS) and a DIGIC 6 image processor that combine to deliver high-resolution photos and Full HD videos. The sensor incorporates Canon’s 49-point Hybrid CMOS AF III system, with phase-detection pixels right on the sensor, as well as contrast-detection AF; it’s up to 6.1X faster than the AF system in the original EOS M. The tilting, 3.0-inch, 1040K-dot LCD monitor has touch capability for simple menu…
